This Week In Emerging Technology - July 25th

Here are the emerging technology stories for the week of July 23rd. A Nanomechanical Computer - This is pretty cutting edge stuff, and interesting to anyone who read Neil Stephenson's Diamond Age. These researchers are just getting started on the ideas behind building a true nanocomputer. GM's Volt, a Plug-In Hybrid - My colleague Wayne Rash had the opportunity to take a close look at new pluggable hybrid car from GM. It is actually pretty cool looking. Playing Footsy With Your Mouse - It's kid of funny looking but I would be interested in trying one out. I've always had a hard time with foot coordination. It's why I gave up on playing a drum set.
